No appreciable folds to see in this outrop, though definitely tilted. This is the type of shot a geologist would take while mapping (with hammer for scale), and is a great fit for the challenge, IMO. Did you remember to record the strike and dip? ;-)

So the tree IS embedded in the cliff face! Cool. I do agree with Kaiser_chef that a different angle may have shown off the uniqueness of this to better advantage. An interesting entry nonetheless. Thanks for the Wikipedia link explaining the formation.

There are a number of elements here that all currently fight for attention.....A different angle ont he rocks may have worked better

Is the tree embedded in the cliff face? It looks a little odd. Might just be the perspective caused by the lens.
